Linear Equations The Number of Solutions of a System of Linear Equations The standard form of a linear equation in $$n$$ unknowns $$x_1,x_2,\dots ,x_n$$ is $$a_1x_1+a_2x_2+\dots +a_nx_n=b,$$ where $$a_1,a_2,\dots ,a_n$$ and $$b$$ are constants. Here constants mean some real numbers (these constants may
